A Palestinian woman behind the lens, Int'l Women's Day 2014

Shuruk Qassem, 19, is a B'Tselem Camera Project volunteer. As part of the project, B'Tselem distributes video cameras to Palestinians in high-conflict areas. Through the use of the camera, many of the women volunteers have managed to bring about a change in the reality of their lives -- and perhaps in ours as well. In the following clip Shuruk describes the process she underwent through having the camera. She also tells about her life in 'Asirah al-Qibliyah, a village is located in one of the most turbulent areas in the West Bank in terms of settler violence.
